A surprise fight between Stephan Bonnar and Rampage Jackson could be brewing after Bonnar called out the former UFC light-heavyweight champion on Saturday.

Bonnar posted his third straight victory with a unanimous decision win over Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 139, during which he once again displayed his granite chin.

The UFC veteran has never been knocked out in his MMA career, only suffering two TKO losses due to cuts. He is also one of only two people to last the distance with reigning champion Jon Jones.

Following victory over Kingsbury, Bonnar told MMA Weekly that he has "always wanted to fight Rampage". And president Dana White later revealed that Rampage is up for the battle.

"Rampage texted me tonight and said he wants to fight him too," White said. "I don't know, we'll see."
